I made this craft last year, but this year I did it again with both children.
I began with a big piece of easel paper taped to the wall (this was actually a reused piece of paper as they already painted on the other side). I made sure it was at a height that was accessible to both children.
I painted each child’s forearm and hand. We pressed them against the paper to make the tree trunk and branches. (Lydia is on the left, Bryce is on the right.)
I grabbed the following paint colors for the leaves: red, orange, yellow, and green. I poured each color next to one another on a palate.
The children placed their fingers in the paint and finger-painted all around the branches to make fall leaves.
Here’s our finished project! I should make these trees year after year to see how much the children have grown. This is a great project for multiple children because they can work alongside one another, sharing the paint.
